Day 2 Choir Tour

At the end of Day 2, we recall a multitude of accomplishments that we did not foresee.   Our bus driver received the nickname, Mr. Wonderful, a few years ago from another choir ensemble.  They were traveling in the New England area during a series of winter snowstorms, Jeff made them a promise that they would not have to have to suffer walking through a storm while dressed in their long black gowns.  The week of storms took pause each time they gave their concerts.   Mr. Wonderful travels took us through 5 different states and some heavy rain storms.  Just as his name promised, the rains would stop for each of our travel and lunch breaks.
